COUGARS GET REVENGE AGAINST LADY CHARGERS

Caldwell, N.J. (2/7/18) The Caldwell University women's basketball team avenged a loss earlier in the season as they defeated the visiting Lady Chargers of Dominican College, 70-44, this evening in a Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) North Division contest played in the Newman Center.

Freshman forward Taylor Tomlinson (Middletown, N.Y.) led Dominican as she recorded a career high 18 points off the bench for the Lady Chargers.  Tomlinson went 9-13 from the floor and added five rebounds in 22 minutes played.
